The Prestige NY team will be participating in the Lupus Alliance of Long Island/Queens 22nd Annual Walk-Along for Lupus on Sunday, October 18. This event is to raise awareness for Lupus, a life-threatening autoimmune disease.
Deer Park, NY, October 23, 2015 (Newswire.com) - “We are proud to support this worthy cause,” said Jessica I., Prestige NY’s president. “It is an honor to be part of a fundraising effort to support research and people facing this painful disease.”
The Prestige NY team will join over 2500 other people at the walk, which takes place in Eisenhower Park, Field #6 in East Meadow, New York. Others contributing in this event include WBAB, News 12, Freeport High School’s marching band, and the Bethpage Federal Credit Union. “It’s a great event,” shared Jessica. “The day is family-oriented and includes breakfast, lunch, face painting, live music, giveaways and much more.”
To help raise money, the Prestige NY team has established its own fundraising page at http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/prestigeny/22nd-annual-walk-along-for-lupus. “We’re looking to raise as much money for this worthy cause as possible,” noted Jessica.
The charity is still open to sponsorships and teams from local businesses. “I hope they have a fabulous turnout,” she added. “There are some nice prizes too for those who raise the most money. There are lunches, gift cards, t-shirts, and more.”
Jessica stated that the Lupus Alliance of Long Island/Queens (LALIQ) supports individuals living in Nassau, Suffolk, and Queens who suffer from lupus. This is a chronic, life-threatening disease that has no cure. “Every dollar raised at the walk helps to serve the Long Island/Queens population that is affected by lupus,” she said. “This organization has been a mainstay for the community since 1955.”
Proceeds from the walk will be used to help establish new support programs and assist those diagnosed with lupus in the form of financial assistance for medical bills, education, kids’ services, and more. For details, visit www.lupusliqueens.org/walkalong22.

This event strikes a chord with our team.”
“We seek to join other local and national businesses in providing support,” she added. “I hope to see many people there as we give back through this wonderful event.”
